This issue examines community-based livestock services that poor people use and who will benefit from expanding global markets

Topics briefly covered include: Women’s ownership of livestock; NGOs support livestock-centred livelihoods; Veterinary medicine; How do higher meat and milk prices affect poor people?; The global livestock trade; Commercial destocking in Ethiopia; and Is pastoralism a viable livelihood option?
